Question about 2003 Lincoln LS
P0316 is a code that sets when the pcm detects a cylinder missfire at initial start up. Do you feel a rough idle when you first start it up? Its common for the ignition coils to fail on the 3.9v6 on the LS due to water intrusion. If you have access to a scanner you can see which cylinder it is that is missfiring and swap coils and spark plugs with other cylinders. If the missfire follows either then you can determine that the fault is in the coil or spark plug.

Are there any additonal codes being thrown for a misfire? Coils and plugs would be a likely culprit knowing this car
